US Rep. Michelle Lujan Grisham (D-Albuquerque) appears well on her way to locking up the Democratic gubernatorial nomination. Late last week, businessman Alan Webber, the second place finisher in the 2014 Democratic primary losing to Attorney General Gary King who then subsequently fell 57-43% to incumbent Gov. Susana Martinez (R), said he will not run for Governor next year and will instead endorse Rep. Grisham. Earlier, Attorney General Hector Balderas (D) did the same. The position is open in 2018 because Gov. Martinez is ineligible to seek a third term.
